Athlete of the Week: Kristin Coles, Women’s Basketball
Jan 10 - Jan 17, 2012
Krisitin Coles recorded two straight double-doubles for UMBC, as the Retrievers defeated America East rivals Stony Brook and Hartford. Coles became the first player to notch consecutive double-doubles since teammate Michelle Kurowski accomplished the feat back in December 2009. The Charles Town, W.Va. native scored 11 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the Retrievers’ 73-57 win over Stony Brook on Thursday and nearly equaled those totals with 10 points and 11 rebounds against Hartford on Monday, in a 71-59 win for UMBC. Coles leads the America East in shooting percentage, making 56.8 percent of her shots in conference play and sits at sixth with 8.4 rebounds per conference contest.
